Gray Mallard

Theater Co.

Professional theater for the Twin Cities in unique outdoor settings with accessibility, Inclusion, community engagement, and diverse voices as integral cornerstones of every production.

SHAKESPEARE AT THE PUB Free. Accessible. Inculsive.

We bring thoughtful, inclusive, and professional outdoor summer Shakespeare to the Twin Cities community. We engage our community by creating a public gathering space centered around a dynamic, imaginative, and entertaining live performance, at no charge to our audience. Our belief that art and culture should be accessible to all drives us to create theater experiences that promote a robust exchange of ideas and provide an extraordinary examination of the human condition.

We engage Minneapolis through a summer tradition of outdoor Shakespeare with highly trained classical actors and quality production values - at no cost. By taking Shakespeare out of a formal theater, we connect with audiences who cannot afford theater tickets and/or might feel intimidated or excluded by the institution. Through an emphasis on storytelling and text with a diverse cast, we connect new audiences to the universality of Shakespeare.

Romeo and Juliet is arguably Shakespeare's most famous play. It unfolds the tragic tale of love, fiery emotions, family duties, clashes between generations, and the chaotic aftermath of spur-of-the-moment decisions.

Twelfth Night is a hilarious and heartbreaking tale of unrequited love and mistaken identity that all starts with a shipwreck, a pair of twins, and a madcap cast of characters. Mayhem inevitably ensues in Shakespeare's romantic comedy about the power of loss and love.

Past Productions

Richard III is a warning about the dangers of ambition in charismatic and calculating rulers. Shakespeare's masterful final play in the War of the Roses cycle is filled with murder, manipulation, and political mayhem. Though Elizabethan in its nature, the themes echo in our world today.
